The following venues are used for most Mass Spec Discussion Group meetings. Note the campus maps available to help you locate the venues.
- SW 728 Southwest Tower, the same structure that houses Barnes-Jewish Emergency Department (see the Medical School campus map). You can park on Kingshighway or the St Louis Children’s Hospital (lower level of Northwest Tower). Alternatively, you can take Metrolink to the Central West End stop and walk to the Southwest Tower. Enter Wohl Clinic from the drive connecting to Children’s Place. Follow the main hallway south and watch for a sign on the right to “Emergency.” Turn right at sign and then left through next doorway. Proceed to Southwest Tower elevators on your right and go to the 7th floor.
- McMillen 311 McMillen Laboratory Building (key #71 on the Danforth Campus map, 3 MB pdf). Enter the campus from Forest Park Parkway at Throop Drive. Make a left turn into Milbrook parking garage, #85. Park as far east as possible, exit the parking garage at the easternmost pedestrian exit and cross Throop Drive. The entrance to the McMillen Laboratory Building is to your left, down a short flight of stairs and then to your right. Take the elevator or stairs to the 3rd floor. Room 311 will be to your left as you exit the elevator.
- LS 250 Laboratory Science Building (key #57 on the Danforth Campus map, 3 MB pdf). Enter the campus from Forest Park Parkway at Throop Drive. Make a left turn into Milbrook parking garage, #85. Exit the parking garage at the center pedestrian exit; the entrance to the Laboratory Science Building will be immediately across the street. Enter there, and go up the gentle ramp towards the end of the hall. LS 250 will be on your right.
- Stadtler Hall and Benton Hall are venues for seminars hosted by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UM–St Louis. The talks that are announced here may be of particular interest to Mass Spec Discussion Group members. Benton Hall is #17 and Stadtler Hall is #20 on the campus map.
